BLACKWOOD, A.: Empty House and Other Stories (The) (Unabridged)

An abandoned house whose horrifi c past is re-enacted for those who dare visit; a terrifying trip down the Danube river; a malevolent half-beast creature who abducts a member of a hunting party; and a tale of paranoia, mental deterioration and all-consuming feelings of doom: here are four feverish, spine-tingling tales that will chill the blood and make the flesh creep.
